Transformational Experiences, Lifelong Connections

Students whose undergraduate years include job exploration, research experiences, or internships find that they are better positioned for success in today’s competitive marketplace. That’s where BrownConnect comes in.

Thanks to generous support and engagement from alumni and parents, it has, in five years: 

  • Provided more than $16 million to support summer internship and research experiences of approximately 3,200 undergraduates.  
  • Linked students with the extraordinary worldwide network of Brown alumni, parents, and friends, who have posted more than 2,600 internship opportunities and participated in networking events around the world. 

Today, all undergraduates—regardless of their financial circumstances—have access to high-quality summer internships and research opportunities. But what about tomorrow’s students?   

BrownConnect allows our flexible yet rigorous approach to education, the Open Curriculum, to flourish beyond the walls of the classroom.

Brown’s distinctive approach to undergraduate education has propelled generations of graduates into high-impact careers and lives of meaning, usefulness, and service to society. BrownConnect is a critical part of that journey, making it possible for students to grow their professional networks before graduation and chart their course for success.
